                                From the valet service with luggage assistance and parking, this was a superior hotel. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The ocean and beach view from the room was lovely, the rooms clean and bright, with the decor giving them a spa feel. The beds were comfortable and the shower had plenty of water pressure. Although we didn't eat there for every meal, given that there were several excellent restaurants in town, the hotel restaurant was elegant, providing good selection and prices for all meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, and service was superior. This hotel is luxurious, and providing that one can afford it, I would consider it a destination hotel for Santa Cruz. We will definitely return to the Dream Inn on our next visit!

                                Location on the beach.

                                Hotel was so noisy, very expensive for thread-bare 60's decor.

                                This is a beachfront hotel but access to the beach is only via the swimming pool. I like this hotel mainly for its close proximity to the wharf.

                                No bath tub for this kind of room rates.

                                Everything - but especially the room and view/location right on the beach.

                                We love the staff, they are the most customer service oriented group out there. We enjoyed the Keuring machine and the fact that you offered my Husband's favorite coffee. This was the first time we used the pool and it was incredible, warm, salty "thick" water. Although we did not use them we appreciate hotels that offer all the docking stations and plug ins for the computers. And we love that you offer different kinds of pillows-we wish they were marked somehow so we could see what we liked the best. We love this chain of hotels and especially the Dream Inn, but compared to our previous visit our experience dropped a bit.

                                People who work at the hotel should be required to use all of the facilities, the restaurant, pool, etc. It's no fun to ask how's the (insert item here) and being told they hear it's good but they haven't eaten/swam there... Also, I'm not sure if last time we stayed the hotel had just been remodeled, but it's looking kind of dingy which shocked us, the carpet in the lobby needed cleaning, there were scrape marks on the wallcovering in several areas, including our room, & our bed linens did not seem as high quality as before. Something you couldn't help were the people smoking pot on their balcony.

                                Loved that every room has a spectacular view of the ocean & the room decor

                                Wish there was a little more in the in room snack bar.... Perhaps some beer options

                                Great location & excellent service. I had sent them advance email requesting a higher level room for better view & our request was granted. And a surprise slIce of cheese cake was delivered in our room for our 25 1/2 yrs late wedding anniversary celebration. Thank you so much it made our stay Special. We enjoyed using the pool & jacuzzi in the side note since its summer time & more kids are using pool so it needed extra cleaning so sand won't accumulate other than that a fresh rolled towel on each chair was great. We will definitely stay in this inn again. :-)

                                The location, the view, and the extended pool hours.

                                The service/maid room, right next to our room, was loud.
